Barbara Cooney and her twin brother were born on August 6, 1917 in Brooklyn, New York to Russell Schenck Cooney and Mae Evelyn Bossert. Because her father was a stockbroker, her family lived in suburbia, which Barbara disliked. Never considering an art school and wanting a liberal arts education, she later attended Smith College where she studied art history and received her degree in 1938, a decision she was later to regret.

An American classic by Barbara Cooney. She is just now getting the wide recognition she deserves.
If you love Maine, especially Mid-Coast Maine, you will find it wonderfully familiar..
This should be in every little boy's library.

Island Boy was a book that my parents read to me when I was a child. I purchased it as a gift for family friends who have young children. The story is classic, touching on family dynamics, growing up, seeing the world but staying in touch with your roots. Even in a children's book you feel the attachment to the characters and the illustrations have always been a favorite of mine. I would recommend this book to anybody I know.

I have enjoyed reading this book to children for years (I'm a teacher). My two sons, ages 9 and 6, still request that I read it to them when we read aloud to each other. The story is a classic tale of the cycles of life, and how you really CAN go home again. I always cry at the end. I recommend it for ages 3 and up. Get ready to answer some weighty kid questions.

My favorite illustrator, I can see why she identified so much with this character. Loved it!
The condition of this book was as good or better than expected and we were glad to finally own it after checking it out from the library many times!
